Serving in the best interests of a community association requires thoughtful problem-solving, persistence, creativity, and leadership from its board members.
It’s crucial that board members adhere to a set of ethical standards that can help them fulfill their volunteer duties with the community’s best interests in mind. CAI’s Model Code of Ethics for Community Association Board Members can serve as a basic framework.
Volunteers are an essential part of any community association. Enlisting and retaining enthusiastic, quality volunteers can be a challenge, but following these steps can help create long-term partnerships.
Many homeowners who live in a community association may not understand how it functions. CAI’s new guide aims to provide an introduction to community association living for those who live in, work for, or participate in a homeowners association, condominium community, or housing cooperative.
2020 has been one of the most difficult and stressful years ever, and has made a tough job even tougher for board members and managers. It’s normal to be feeling anxious, nervous, or sad, but it’s important to take care of yourself so you can better support your community.
